Patrick Brunson: 00:00
This week, the International Monetary Fund or IMF has stated that growth is slowing in a number of the world's biggest economies and the IMF is warning that investor sentiment couldn't make a sudden reversal for the worse. Although still supportive of growth, global financial conditions have started to tighten, according to the fund's latest regional economic outlook report. But the IMF has also stated that higher interest rates, a stronger US dollar and financial market volatility, could bring pressure in some of the markets and developing economies. A worsening of these developments or faster than anticipated monetary policy tightening, in advanced economies- it increases the risk of sudden reversal in global risk appetite and the stock market itself. This information and these reports are very important to the stability of our economy as well as our markets and we have to stay in tune with these topics. However, the media does not really like to speak of these things very often because they do not want to add or feed info that's going to increase the negative sentiment and investors.
